4:03pm
a cruise ship safety drill ends in disaster. i'm harris falkner, we begin tonight with what is shaping up to be one of the toughest showdowns, the prows has faced in some time. it's not over taxes, debt or unemployment. it's the potential block of the president from moving ahead with what he says is a key focus of his administration right now. president obama has chosen two men to help lead our national security and those picks could be put on hold by a pair of powerful republican senators. at issue, the september 11th attack on our u.s. consulate in libya and what one senator called stone walling attempts by the white house on handing over more information. here is where we've been. a storm brewing on this for about five months. since our embassy came under attack by terrorists, we lost four americans that night. ambassador chris stevens, sean smith, doherty and woods. and the days that followed, if
4:04pm
your remember, was enough done to protect our people there. in the months since the administration's actions and motives have been questioned. just hours ago, south carolina senator lindsey graham saying he'll hold up two of the president's national security picks. chuck hagel for defense secretary and john brennan for the head of the cia. senator graham now demanding more answers about what happened in benghazi. and the ranking republican on the senate armed services committee, oklahoma senator jim inhofe says one option is to filibuster, delay those nominations. >> i would threaten to cause a 60 vote margin, yes, i will, do it that way. >> harris: the white house now firing back saying outgoing defense secretary leon panetta has already testified at length about benghazi just last week and lawmakers should not play politics with critical nominations. steve centanni live with the news from washington, steve? >> reporter: yeah, there could be an attempt to hold up two
4:05pm
important nominations. until the white house answers more questions about benghazi. now, senator lindsey graham want today know if the president worked out personally to libyan leaders during that in benghazi. he seaid that hagel and brennan could be side track until they get the answers they want. stopping short of a filibuster, graham has concerns whether the president did enough to stop the attack that killed four americans. >> i do believe if he had picked up the phone and called the libyan government these folks could have gotten to the airport out of the annex and last two guys could have been alive and if he did call the officials, and blew him off and affect whether i give foreign aid in the future to libya. if he failed to call on behalf of those under sage, a massive failure by leadership and commander-in-chief. but democrats suggest that
4:06pm
they're doing the country a disservice, near is harry reid. >> and press center unwarranted to stop or attempt to try to stop the secretary of defense and the cia director. we need the men and women need the secretary of defense, chuck hagel's imminently qualified to be that secretary of defense. >> and jack reed of rhode island and the senate armed services committee postponed a vote on hagel until this week and it could come up as early as this coming week, harris. >> anybody who thought this issue was going away, woefully underestimated it. steve centanni, part of the opposition of john brennan to head the cia is his role in creating a controversial drone program. it targets the suspected terrorists including those who and reveals that americans overseas can be targeted for killing without any kind of court order. officials simply have to determine that that person is a terror leader and a serious
4:07pm
threat to the united states, and then it would be too dangerous to try to capture that person. tonight, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle speaking out about the issue, peter doocy now with more on this for us from washington, peter? >> harris, democrats and republicans seem to agree that it's okay to order a lethal drone strike against the u.s. citizens if that person has aligned themselves with terrorists trying to attack america. but there's some disagreement about when it's okay to make that order. republican senator rand paul said this morning, no american should be be executed without a trial. the president, a politician, republican or democrat should never get to decide someone's death by flipping through some flash cards and saying, do you want to kill him? i don't know. yeah, let's go ahead and kill him. >> independent senator angus king agrees that decisions about lethal operations should be made by more than one person. >> i think some independent check on the executive is healthy for our system. >> and congress is about to figure out a way to make those checks and balances, according
4:08pm
to democratic senator dick durbin. >> we're going to hold hearings to work on this element, how to mesh the principles and values with the new mode of war. >> any trial would be encroachment in the american of senator john mccain and simply prefers taking drones away from the cia. >> since when is the intelligence agency supposed to be a force of drones going around killing people. >> i believe it's for the department of defense. >> senator mccain calls the current situation is a conundrum and the drones will kill americans overseas and give them miranda rights when captured here in the united states. >> harris: peter doocy, thank you very much. fox urgent. a 1 million dollar reward to catch a killer, death and destruction so far. the mayor and police chief saying this is the highest bounty in that city's history
4:09pm
and calling christopher dorner a domestic terrorist. and this detail, the news conference that just wrapped up this evening was held underground for the department's own safety. as you may know from our coverage on fox, dorner put out an onhine manifesto naming 50 targets. those officers and their families under tight protection tonight. dorner vowing revenge for getting kicked off the force years ago. he's suspected of killing three people already. >> some may ask why so large. this is an act, and make no mistake about it, of domestic terrorism. this is a man who has targeted those that we entrust to protect the public his actions cannot go unanswered. >> it is a nationwide search and this video showing the massive backup of traffic at the u.s. border with mexico. officers are going door-to-door with rifles near there, searching for what they
4:10pm
call, quote, a killer they won't tolerate living at large end quote. ali is an acuna, a million dollars, domestic terrorism. this is just taken a very different turn. >> that's right, harris, and here is the tone of much larger implications, but officials were careful not to give too many details and the mayor said they had to keep things close to the vest because if christopher dorner is still alive he could be watching the news. >> he's reviewing every single article that's written on this to the extent that we give you information, that indicates what we know about his whereabouts, we're impeding our own investigations and maybe possibly allowing this man to get away. >> the manhunt continues tonight in the big bear ski resort area northeast of los angeles where dorner's burning truck was found. that's the focus area and the
4:11pm
search is stretched to nevada where dorner owns a home in northern mexico and the u.s. border patrol is working this as well and 50 lapd families under surveillances and protection because dorner listed them as potential victims in his online manifesto. >> we have a small group that goes out every day, every night, to try to make a difference in people's lives, a positive difference and they're being targeted for that. as are their families. >> there is additional tension tonight because not too far from where we are standing, the grammy awards are being hosted at the staples center, this is a huge event which requires a great police presence and officers, harris, as you know, are listed as potential targets, harris. >> harris: i don't want to make too much out of this, but it seems like just then, there was a lot of emotion that's kind of bubbling up at that news conference.
4:12pm
>> yes, there was quite a bit of emotion. you saw it there when the chief was delivering his remarks because they also announced that one of their own, one of the officers, a riverside police officer will be laid to rest next week. riverside police officer mike crane will be laid to rest. now, officer crane was a california native who had been with the department since 2001, before that crane served as a u.s. marine and police say that dorner gunned him down last thursday in an ambush while he was on patrol and parked at a stop light. crane was just 34 years old and leaves behind his wife and two young children. harris. >> alicia acuna, thank you very much. we'll go back over some details now. the story unfolding for days and here is the time line. monica quan and her fiance found shot. and she was the daughter of the captain that represented christopher dorner in hearings
4:13pm
that resulted in his dismissal, a gunman believed to be dorner ambushed police officers at a red light, and alicia was talking about this, one was killed and other critically injured. later that same day a burned out pickup truck was found in a ski area near the san bernardino mountains. they were going door-to-door in the snowy area, and weapons were indeed found inside christopher dorner's burned out truck. right now, word of at least one tornado that has touched down in the southern part of this country. take a look at this map now. that red zone right there is where the tornado warnings are in force and that can mean either a touchdown has already been reported, or there's a possibility. multiple reports now coming into fox news in other cities outside that zone already.
4:14pm
we have confirmed there are injuries and damage in at least one community. maria molina is in the extreme weather center with the breaking details, we'll get to her moments away. all of this, as you know, is a new weather threat is looming in the northeast, long after the blizzard that stocked the east coast this weekend. the weight of all of that heavy snow is starting to take a serious toll on our structures. plus, stocks, 401(k)'s, riding high after one banner week, so what threatens to derail wall street's big rally? and what might that mean to your bottom line? stay close. for over 75 years people have saved money with...ohhh... ...with geico... ohhh...sorry! director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action for over 75 years people have saved money with gecko so.... director's voice: cut it! ...what...what did i say? gecko? i said gecko? aw... for over 75 year...(laughs. but still trying to keep it contained) director's voice: keep it together. i'm good. i'm good. for over 75...(uncontrollable laughter). what are you doing there? stop making me laugh.

hypothetically, if someone invested $10,000 in the s & p would it hit a five year low back in february of 2009. today, they'd have more than $20,000, a nice hypothetical. that's more than 100% return. will it last? senior business correspondent, and host of bulls and bears, brenda buttner has more, you'd never know it's winter on wall street, the markets are red-hot and the s & p likely part of your 401(k) is more than okay. near all-time highs, up more than 12% in less than three months, but what could put the markets on ice? the very fact that they are sizzling. yes, often when bulls are on this kind of run, small investors play catchup. that's what they're doing now. in the last three weeks alone, they've nearly 24 billion dollars into u.s. mutual funds. january was the first positive month of inflows in nearly two years, that could be a sign the bull will stumble.

>> it's breaking news tonight on fox report. we knew at the top of the hour we had warnings and a possible touchdown and a twister and now we know the situation is playing out in haties berg, mississippi near the university of southern mississippi and we've heard now from the emergency officials in the area that the students were out on school break. there are some injuries and we're trying to learn exactly the extent of those injuries, but the good news is that campus would not have been full at this point. now, i want to jump to marion county. the emergency director there, aaron grier, is saying that there have been three injuries, at least one minor reported in the community of pickwick about seven miles south of columbia mississippi
4:46pm
and one person has been taken to the hospital by ambulance and told to the associated press. another by triple-a and a third person did not have the injury examined. so we've got at least one child, one minor that's been hurt. and the same person, the emergency director for marion county in columbia, mississippi says one mobile home has been destroyed. other structures, major damage. some minor damage, emergency workers are checking as several roads were damaged were reported as well on motorists who might have been out at the time. i want to go straight now, the map is already up. maria molina, you have told us in the fox weather centers this is going to be an active night and now we're seeing signs of have he severe touchdowns, tell us more. >> yeah,nator. very severe damage as well across many of these areas in southern parts of mississippi and i do want to update you, you mentioned marion county. the storm prediction center, a branch of noaa, the national
4:47pm
weather service, from three injuries to five injuries. this is a storm prediction center and moments hahomes have damaged and lawrence county, three homes damaged across the areas and hattiesburg, multiple reports, there was a large tornado on the ground, that's reported and pictures as well on twitter, if you have any pictures please tweet them to me. reports of homes damaged and power lines out as well and reports of a high school and a baseball field, this is grove high school majorly damaged, so this is reports we're getting out of the hattiesburg area in forest county, mississippi and lawrence and lamar counties, counties where at least five homes have been reported to be damaged and we have more ongoing tornado warnings out across this area, southeastern portions of alabama, mississippi and we're focusing in for the severe weather possible and we have a
4:48pm
large system impacting parts of the north central with blizzard conditions and up to 16 inches of snow and wind gusts, 40 miles per hour and the southern side of the system, temperatures are very warm and gulf moisture and high humidity in place and we have two tornado watches across southwestern, alabama and mississippi into southeastern, louisiana both in effect until 11 p.m. central time and we have the threat for more tornadic activity as we head into the nighttime hours which is more dangerous because you can't see any tornados. so once the tornado warnings get issued for your county, it's very seriously that you do take them seriously and you can see a number now. and hattiesburg, an area that was hit hard. at least one tornado, you can see the line of tornado warnings currently in effect and stretching into southwestern, alabama and harris, we want to remind everyone when the warnings gets issued. you've got to seek shelter and
4:49pm
go to a basement that's he the number one choice, you have a basement. if you don't, you've got to stay away from windows, go to the lowest levels of your home and also try to stay into the most center part of your home, something to take very seriously. keep that in mind when these tornado warnings get issued for your county. that means there could currently be a tornado on the ground or a-- one can develop very shortly and the thunderstorms, you move very quickly, 40, 50, 60 miles per hour so again, a very real threat and we have multiple reports of damage coming out of lawrence county, lamar county, and forest county including the town of hattiesburg in mississippi. harris. >> harris: we're going to stand by now because we have video coming in, as soon as we can pop that up on the screen, we will. you had mentioned twitter, we can certainly get people to send video or pictures to us that way, but i want to remind everybody, you report is the best and quickest way to get it on the air, at the bottom
4:50pm
of the screen, foxnews.co foxnews.com/ureport. and this the system is moving rapidly. the producer telling me in the ear piece, do we have the video ready? we're standing by. and you've got us in a red watch box you mentioned something and i'm starting to see this play out a bit from ktxl near the university of southern mississippi and hearing it from columbia, mississippi as well seeing it on the associated press wires from the marion county emergency director, too, do we have more than one confirmed tornado that is large that has hit or was this one that moved along, because sometimes they'll stick on the ground for quite same time. >> yeah, that's right. especially a larger tornado. the sign is that it could last longer and the one large tornado seems to be out of the hattiesburg county or city and mississippi, and forest county
4:51pm
appears to include lamar county here from the reports that i have, of the large tornado on the ground, but the tornados don't need to be large to pretty much cause significant damage, so keep in mind that anytime the warnings get issued take appropriate action immediately. >> all right, maria, we're going to take a quick commercial break as we try to turn this video around now. amazing pictures coming to us from west hattiesburg, mississippi. take a look. little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking.

>> fox weather alert. let's get right to the pictures here. this is hattiesburg, mississippi. look at that monster in the center of your screen. first pictures coming into fox news now. a tornado, a large one touching down. we know of severe damage to structures. we know of destruction.
4:55pm
we know of severe injuries to people at least three people injured, one of them a minor near here and in this particular area, we're told it was near the university of southern mississippi. we're still gathering details, but the emergency management there saying hardly anybody was on campus thankfully because they're on break. maria molina at the fox weather center, you're watching the pictures to me. what does it look like to you? >> that looks terrible. that tornado is probably is ef-2 or 3 strength, but we won't really know until the survey crews head out and assess the damage and that's really how they determine the strength of that tornado and estimate what winds it has and probably looks like winds over 100 miles per hour, with that particular tornado, it's a very dangerous stuff and based on the reports that we have already received as well of the damage of baseball fields damage, of a high school, i believe it's groves high school in that area, so, a lot of damage coming out of hattiesburg, that one area, from that tornado, it seems.
4:56pm
so very dangerous stuff here and we have that threat ongoing, not just across the mississippi, but also into alabama and as we headed into tonight, many people will be sleeping and the risk of more tornados so if anybody can leave on their television screen or an noaa radio that's important for tonight. you can the get the warnings to you right away and know when you need to seek shelter and take appropriate action when there is a possible tornado in your county. >> they're going to rerack this video because we want to take a look at this. it's unedited and raw and if you run a clock on it, this thing stays on the ground for a minute, maybe longer. you'd have to to be clairvoyant to know when it's going to hit. here is hattiesburg, this sort of thing moving across the region and people needs to be prepared as the sun sets, you can't see them moving around
